Decide how much money you can afford for a summer vacation. Review your income, expenses and debt obligations and set aside money for emergency expenses. Then decide how much you can direct towards a summer vacation. This becomes the baseline amount for your travel, lodging, meals and amusement. Add up the estimated costs in advance before making final plans. Then put away money each month into a savings account.
Use the Internet to get information on sightseeing, tourism attractions and discount travel and lodging. Ask travel agents for information on seasonal discounts. Read the latest travel guides available online, in newspapers and through local visitor and tourism associations. Get advice from friends and relatives who've traveled to places you plan to visit. They can help direct you to places that are fun and affordable.
Map out your daily activities and routes to ensure that you're staying on course and on budget. Unplanned activities can often amount to unplanned spending. And before you know it, your budget will be busted.
